Collateral damage (Control)

Indexed SAS datasets are at times vulnerable to getting damaged. Especially when you update an indexed dataset. To save this damage, SAS has come up with these options which repairs the dataset and gets back the data to its original form.. (trust me.. It once saved my life! Phew!!!!)

Check the below link for the damage control. I tried the option DLDMGACTION=NOINDEX. This was because my data step had completed and i was not able to access the data. There are many other senarios explained which might be handy sometimes...
